Hello to all Cpnhelpers...I'm very sorry about the spam blocking problems that have cropped up. The old system worked pretty well for years. I believe the problem was fundamentally political in nature: it had become influenced by fascist propaganda spammers. The system was centrist, originally, but apparently had become more and more authoritarian in its screening of posts. Even "staff" like Macintosh were censored!
Dr. Mercola has alerted us to problems in the measurement of Vitamin D testing from different labs. He also explains the process of measurement nicely. Worth looking at if you've been tested from Quest. Thanks to Dr. Powell for sending this alert on.http://v.mercola.com/blogs/public_blog/warning--are-your-vitamin-d-test…
Well, for completely unknown reasons the default Theme for cpnhelp, called Fancy, broke! It would no longer display the tabs at the top for the primary links. So, I've temporarily replaced it with another as the site default.
We are working on a really beautiful, easy to use new theme but it requires a lot more configuration before it's usable, and it's Saturday, and I've spent way too long in front of the computer today!
If you can't get the links, go to 'my account/edit" and select either Marvin, Chameleon, or Blue Marine.
With any luck we should be switched over to the new upgraded software in the next day or so. You shouldn't notice any differences really, although the signatures on the blogs may start to appear. Hopefully we'll be better protected from spammers and have some speed improvements. Then over the next month or so some of us will be putting together a new design for the site which will present a clearer format for new folks, more familiar looking forum formating, and some other improvements. But if you find the site off line for a couple hours, you'll know what's up! Keep your fingers crossed.
I've made most of the sidebar blocks like the poll, new comments, etc. hidden unless you select them yourself to show them. Trying to help clean up the confusng page elements for new folks to the site. If you want them back, just go to 'my account/edit' and check which ones you want to show up. No worries!
With any luck, we will be getting a site upgrade sometime in the next couple days. So there may be a time when you can't log in or find the site for a couple hours. Don't panic, we'll be back.We are badly in need of updating to the current Drupal system, enhancing security, getting functions to work as they should, and even adding a few extras (I'm hopeful we'll get a chat system going again). Those of you who have donated $, this is where a chunk is going! Thanks!
Seems one of our members is keeping their letters to the editor up to date. Thanks for the mention:http://www.immunesupport.com/library/showarticle.cfm?id=8524&T=CFIDS_FM…
Thanks to Daisy's urging I finally got the Image Assist module working, which will make it easy to upload and add images to a post as well as utilize existing images in the Image Gallery.In the Tinymce editor (Rich Text setting) you will see a little camera icon. Click it and a popup window gives you the choice to see your image library (one's you've already uploaded), the general gallery or upload a new image. Multiple images are possible, but watch your sizing. These are thumbnails.

I have set up the latest spam filter, if you notice anything odd let me know. b
